Lamb’s ears

I went to a one room school for my first 4 grades, but it was a large room divided by folding doors, so in truth it had the Little Room and the Big Room. Four grades were in one, and four grades were in the other. My mother happened to be the principal of the school, and she taught in the Big Room. I was in the Little Room.

Being the principal’s daughter did not have its privileges. I was to follow all rules, I was to stay clean, and I had to act like a lady at all times. Well. In the first place, I rambled around the mountains with Aunt Bett from early spring till late fall, and I was not known to come home with clothes, hair and body intact. I had walnut stains on my hands, orange dye in my hair and pokeberry tattoos around my belly button. And I drank chicory with Uncle Dock. But in school I had to be a little lady.

It was my mother’s fault. She made my dresses out of flowered fabric, lace on the collar, ruffles around the bottom, bows in my hair, and white socks. Always white socks.

The school building was perpendicular to the creek which ran beside the road, so there was a walk bridge that we crossed to get from the road to the schoolground. We played hop scotch, jump rope and marbles in the front yard of the school, so there was no grass. In the back yard the boys had a basketball hoop, and there was no grass there either. Sometimes when we had secret things to tell our friends it was not unusual to sneak down the bank and hide under the walk bridge to have some privacy. Or to make mud pies. Or to float leaf boats. I considered that quite creative. It was even more creative to sit down on our bottoms and slide down the bank; a lot more fun, too.

We played troll under the bridge, and hid from the boys. Growing there along the bank was a wonderful crop of lamb’s ears with its soft furry leaves that I loved to touch. Lamb’s ears (Stachys byzantina) grew all over the mountains, they had big fuzzy leaves at the base and as it grew upward, each plant formed a spike that bloomed thickly in pink or purple flowers. I didn’t care about the flowers but I did love those fuzzy leaves.

There were always lamb’s ears growing in Aunt Betts garden, and many times when I had lost a battle with a bee Aunt Bett would grab a handful of dirt and slop a little water into it, mix it in her hands and slap it on my bee sting. That kept me quiet long enough for her to run to the bunch of lamb’s ears and tear off one of its soft fuzzy leaves and wrap it around the bee sting. The leaf was held in place with a string or whatever she had handy. It took the sting right away, and by the time we finished the garden chores and got back to her house, it was as if the bee never stung at all. So I knew all about lamb’s ears. By the time I was almost 8, I knew a lot about many things, and I considered myself the Assistant Mountain Medicine Woman.

Back to school, now, and it was the beginning of a new year. Again my mother tried really hard to make a lady of me. I wore my white homemade dress that had tiny blue flowers on it. White lace trimmed socks, blue ribbons in my hair, and probably white Mary Janes. My mother should have known better. I got to school intact. I even made it through spelling and arithmetic, then a bee buzzed in through one of the open windows, and landed right smack on the back of Joe Devlin’s dirty neck. Joe Devlin sat in front of me because if he had sat behind me he would have put chewing gum in my hair, as he had done on more than one occasion.

I calmly watched the bee sting happen. He yelled and slapped his neck, just making the bee a whole lot madder. It stung again, and he yelled again. “I can save him,” I yelled, and ran out of the classroom, down the steps, and slid on my bottom straight down to the creek. I grabbed a handful of mud in one hand, and a big leaf from the lamb’s ears in the other. I scampered back up the bank and ran lickety split back to the classroom. Joe Devlin was still yelling, my teacher’s mouth was still hanging open and everybody else was wide eyed watching Joe Devlin jumping up and down in the aisle. I slapped the mud on Joe Devlin’s neck and while he stood in shock (from the slap, I guess) I grabbed one of my hair ribbons with my muddy hand, slammed the lamb’s ear leaf on the back of his neck and tied it in place with the blue hair ribbon. It looked a little like a leash, so I tied it in a bow on the front of his neck. I hope you get the picture, Joe Devlin, a lamb’s ear leaf across the back of his neck, a blue ribbon complete with bow tied around his neck, mud dripping down his shirt collar. And then there was my mother, who somehow entered the scene while I was saving Joe Devlin’s life.

She took my arm and walked me up to the desk where my teacher was still sitting, mouth still open. Then without a word my mother turned me around to face my classmates. Then she turned me back around to face my teacher. The kids giggled, my teacher covered her open mouth with her hand, and Joe Devlin quit yelling. The back of my legs including my underwear and the skirt of my dress was covered in dirt and grass stains. Somewhere I had lost one of my Mary Janes, and I had a muddy sock. I had one loose ribbonless braid. The front of my dress where I carried the mud….well, I think you can imagine.

Then Joe Devlin started yelling again, “You ain’t no medicine woman, I’m tellin’, I’m tellin’ and my Ma she’s gonna come git ya for hurtin’ my beesting.” I simply refuse to remember the rest of it. Bits and pieces of a willow switch come to mind, along with a lecture to Aunt Bett later that evening, with me in attendance. I do remember sitting outside on the little porch in my muddy clothes for the rest of the school day and well into the evening waiting for my mother to finish her chores, and to send a letter home with Joe Devlin explaining what had happened and apologizing for the misbehavior of her daughter.

Joe Devlin’s mother never showed up at school, and there was no sign of the beesting on the back of his neck the next day when he sat in front of me after my apology to him in front of the entire classroom. I missed several recesses the rest of that week, and was never allowed anywhere near that creek again. I did save Joe Devlin’s life, even if I was only an assistant mini mountain medicine woman. Aunt Bett told me so.

Unfortunately, yellow puts me to sleep.

I know yellow is the color of sunshine, peace, love, happiness and all that, but I just don’t care for it. There’s just too much of it and it’s EVERYWHERE. Wikipedia says yellow is the most common color for flowers.

Practically the first flower to emerge out of snow and mud is the hated dandelion (Taraxacum officinale). Every late winter, enjoying the sea of little gold flowers, I mentally wonder what the world has against dandelions. And every year I remember soon enough, as we spend the year digging up tenacious dandelion roots and watching white puff-balls blow millions of fertile dandelion seeds everywhere.

Whitman thought dandelions were innocent? Most of us realize that they’re anything but. They have a scheme to take over your land via underground stolons. Beware!

In February, many people cut a few forsythia branches to “force” indoors. In March, when the first forsythia blooms burst forth from what used to look like dead sticks, it is indeed exciting, for a minute. But when my yard and every other yard on the block are full of forsythia, some healthy, vigorous and well-pruned and some languishing or pruned within a branch of their lives, forsythia seems awfully common. There are plenty of more unusual early spring bloomers.

When I say common, I mean in the sense of “average, ordinary, garden variety.” Dandelions are a common lawn weed and forsythia is a common attempt at landscaping an empty yard.

Daffodils come soon after forsythia, often before the snow has completely melted. They are also traditionally yellow. I planted white ‘Thalia’ daffodils, which bloom later than standard yellow ones, and increase yearly.

The poet, William Wordsworth (1770-1850) famously wrote of “crowds” of daffodils (above), but I think more in terms of gangs of daffodils. Careful planting of early- mid- and late-blooming varieties can give you a steady supply of golden daffodils from March until late May, should that be your wish.

Late April-early June sees hundreds and thousands of buttercups in the lawn. There are some 600 species of Ranunculus, many of which are called “buttercup.” Whichever flower you call a “buttercup,” it is yellow and native to where it grows. As children, we held buttercups up to each others chins and said “do you like butter?” Of course, everyone did. My yard is freckled with dots of buttercup.

By the time actual summer begins, after the solstice in June, yellow has taken over my yard. I didn’t always dislike yellow; there is archeologic evidence in the Coreopsis I planted years and years ago. My Coreopsis refuses to be restricted to one bed or one part of the yard, and splashes its drippy, melted butter color here and there. It has been spreading steadily, inexorably.

I also planted Achillea or yarrow too long ago to remember, a yellow, weedy variety of Achillea all along the path. (There are other yarrows which are white or attractive reds and pinks; but not for me.) It has spread too, sunny circles of sunshiny golden goodness spreading throughout the dreary world. Grrrr. I even find yarrow volunteers in the back, which is supposed to be my haven from yellow.

I have forgotten why we planted black-eyed Susans, which blot the street-side of the yard with a smear of mustard-y yellow beginning toward the end of July. Black-eyed Susans are allegedly named for a Robert Burns poem about a person named “Susan”, although the poem was probably written after the flower had acquired its name.

In July comes an onslaught of Stella D’Oro dayliles. There are certainly other yellow daylilies, but only Stella D’Oro (also called Stella Doro and Stella de Oro, meaning star of gold) is equally comfortable at a gas station foundation planting or hanging out at the mall. The first truly re-blooming daylily, Stellas are unbelievably sturdy and do, in fact, have flushes of rebloom off and on all summer. However there now exist many other reblooming daylilies that should be considered. Reblooming daylilies come in lots of colors, and now you can have a whole yard full of sporadically reblooming daylilies in a rainbow of colors. And you can certainly omit golden ones.

August sees all kinds of hideously yellow flowers in bloom, like sunflowers, yellow ‘purple coneflowers’ and cosmos. I just don’t grow those because, well, they’re often yellow. By the time I planted Helenium, I was actively looking for non-yellow cultivars. I liked Helenium as a nod to my sister Helen, as well as a reliable, easy-care, late summer bloomer. Most of the Heleniums available are yellow, however, but I traded with another Dave’s gardener for seeds to “Ruby Tuesday’ Helenium (which, as you can guess, is mostly red and not yellow).

There are fields of yellow marigolds and formal plantings of yellow canna lilies. It is really a difficult time for those of us who dislike yellow. (There must be others, right, it’s not just me?) Even the weeds are yellow!

For painter Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), yellow was a favorite color, maybe because there were, in the late 19th cenury, novel, more stable versions of yellow paint to use. His famous series of paintings of Sunflowers (one is below left) were painted in 1888 against a yellow background while he lived in a “Yellow House.”

Abelia is a tough workhorse that keeps the show going through the blistering heat and humidity.

When summer heat and humidity arrive, many shrubs switch to ‘survival mode’ and hunker down until more agreeable temperatures set in. Not so with abelia. This tough little shrub thrives through whatever summer throws its way. This Asian native blooms from late spring through summer and even sporadically up until frost. It is a member of the Caprifoliaceae family which includes the honeysuckles, so it is no surprise that it has a nice fragrance and attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to the tubular flowers. In fact, many beekeepers plant it on purpose to keep their hives fed. Bambi doesn’t find it particularly tasty, so it is an excellent choice if deer plague your property.

Abelias make an excellent choice for foundation plantings because they bloom on new wood. Homeowners can keep them neat and tidy around their home and still be guaranteed a lovely show. Prune in early spring for summer blooms. They are pretty much care-free and seldom have any pest problems. Many churches and banks in my town use them because they look nice all year and are low maintenance. New foliage is bronze and is evergreen to semi-evergreen, depending on how far north or south you are. Abelias are even somewhat salt-tolerant, so make a good choice for coastal gardens as well.

There are several types of abelias, however the most popular seems to be the Abelia x grandiflora, which is an hybrid cross between A. chinensis and A. uniflora. There are a number of named cultivars with various attributes such as variegated foliage and dwarf growth habits, so there’s sure to be one that is a good fit for your property. Some grow to barely 3 feet tall, while others top out at about 6 to 8 feet, however any of them can be pruned to keep them tidy in their surroundings, just be sure to prune in early spring before the new growth emerges. They look best when allowed to maintain an airy, arching form, but I’ve seen hedges of abelias too. Just remember to prune a hedge back further than you want to to grow in late winter to allow it to bloom. Plant your abelia in full sun to partial shade and water well for its first year. After that, it should be somewhat drought-tolerant, but bear in mind that there will be fewer blooms when the plant is under stress. It also does best when planted where it is sheltered from the wind. Here at my home, that is along my eastern foundation. They are sheltered from the west winds and I have sun on those beds until about 1pm. Abelias are hardy from USDA Zones 6 through 9, but since they bloom on new wood, even if they freeze to the ground in harsh winters, you’ll still have a nice show each spring.

These shrubs are a bug magnet, so be prepared to see many species of bees, insects and butterflies around them. They are an excellent choice for a pollinator garden. I’ve even used the slender branches with my cut flower arrangements and they look great mixed with summer flowers. Abelias are pretty much a win-win situation in the garden and provide an attractive and carefree show each summer.
